Elon Musk, billionaire, has once again broken the mold by inventing a product that will forever change how people live. His newest venture is affordable solar roofing tiles that not only generate electricity but will be cheaper than conventional roofing.
This information alone has turned the roofer industry around. It was unexpected that the cost of a standard roof could be upgraded at such a low price. This means that anyone with a roof can upgrade their roof and generate electricity, saving them thousands of dollars each year. This is a scene straight out of Star Trek, but it’s not. The technology is here and improving every year, and Elon Musk has put the roof over our heads we can rely on.
It took some doing, but after buying a solar energy company and using two of his existing technologies, He’s got your solar energy solutions right there. Think of roofing and energy technology as a service that continues to work for you, even after the purchase and maintenance. Your roof is your first line of defense for your home and business. It’s possible to have a roof that not only protects but also generates the valuable energy you desire.
The two other products Tesla introduced are the Powerwall 2 and Powerpack 2. These systems will work together with the solar roofing panels in order to better distribute and regulate energy. This new venture is not going to make Elon Musk or Tesla rich. The product is lighter than other roofing materials, more durable, and less maintenance, fewer costs and generates energy! You can’t lose. This roofing can’t order pizza for you, but they know that today’s children will find an app.
What will the government and the competitive roofing industry do? Because there is no escape from this new roofing, they will be terrified and in awe. It would be foolish to turn it down. It is important that the government offers tax breaks to people who use the roofs. This will make it much easier for them to order and install the roofing. The roofing is so simple to install that even a child could do it. This would lead to a significant disruption in the industry of roofing. People will need to be retrained, let go, or hired again to remove all old roofs.
There are many questions such as: How will insurance companies handle the new technologies? Some municipalities may ban them. As these new solar roofs are installed, the battle will continue in 2017. It will be fascinating to see all this unfold. We can thank Elon Musk, Tesla, and other innovators for breaking down barriers to technology that makes our lives easier.
